Hi. Your recipe calls for I/2 lime squeezed. Is that the lime from 1/2 lime, or1/2 tbsp juice? Help the dumb round-eye out please :)

Good recipe, this is similar to the one my mom makes and she is from Saigon. When I make it at home for my husband who's white, I tone down the flavors by adding water. Even within my parents' household, my dad makes a different version than my mom. Instead of adding water, he adds coconut water or Coco Rico. I had a friend whose mom has a Vietnamese restaurant in Austin and her secret ingredient in the nuoc mam/cham was Sprite!

My recipe is the same, except I use less sugar, and two whole limes! and 3 cloves of crushed garlic, and 5 crushed thai red chili peppers, and also added to that is crushed ginger. My concoction is deadly but delicious. 1/2 cup fish sauce and 1/2 filtered water.

Usually we'll just find whatever chili we can to substitute, rather than a chili paste. It tends to give a better layering of flavors rather than muddling them all together, but in a pinch sambal oelek would still work fine.

one more question...could I use sambal oelek in place of fresh thai chilis?

Based on the it possible to CAN this? (Fingers crossed here) There is a restaurant here in Denver (New Saigon; that, well, EVERYTHING I've tried has been fantastic, but they serve a Duck Salad (GOÛI VÒT) to which I am completely ADDICTED. We are lucky enough to have many Asian markets here, so it's fairly easy to get what I need to replicate this. Until now, I was missing the fish sauce dressing. New Saigon also serves this dish with huge shrimp chips, but I haven't been able to find those. I AM SO EXCITED! lol.

I think you are talking about a cherimoya (sour-sop). There is a Vietnamese smoothie that I get all the time called Sinh To Mang Cua, and the flavor is like a custard apple.

You're not talking about lychees, are you?

My mother is from south Vietnam and this is more or less how she makes her nuoc mam (she calls this one "nuoc mam oc" actually because "nuoc mam" is the fish sauce by itself that you buy bottled) though I would agree with you that her recipe calls for less nuoc mam and more water than is called for here. Again, there is no right or wrong way to do it but my mother's version is exactly how her family prepared it in their small village to the far south of Saigon so I don't think it would be geared towards "Americanized" palates. The sweeter version, often with carrots, served in restaurants is what my mother claims is geared towards Americans who can't handle the full flavor of the nuoc mam with the hot chilis. I guess it just depends on your point of view. I personally don't care for the sauce served in restuarants and never use it. And I prefer my nuoc mam oc even spicier than my mom so I always add a lot more chili. :)

Never mind, I just used Sriracha sauce because I had it in the fridge and it's made of chilis! Worked out great, we loved the nuoc mam cham. I posted about the spring roll recipe I made on my blog and referred to your recipe. Here is the post if you are interested: Thanks so much for the great recipe!
